Louis van Gaal is said to be interested in both players as he looks to improve his squad for next season. However, Man United are aware that Dortmund have a ‘policy’ of only allowing one big name to leave each summer.
The club’s sporting director Michael Zorc recently confirmed Gundogan will leave Dortmund at the end of the season, meaning Hummels may be forced to stay.
There is a hope from United that Jurgen Klopp’s departure could prompt Dortmund to change their policy in order to give incoming coach Thomas Tuchel more flexibility when it comes to making his own stamp on the squad.
Dortmund don’t have much of a choice but to sell Gundogan given he only has a year remaining on his contract but the Hummels situation is more complicated.
Hopefully, the player himself will force a move as numerous comments from him this season have suggested he isn’t too happy at the club. Both players would be fantastic additions at United if they were to get them.
